Amidst the global pandemic crisis and the indefinite lockdown across nations, the consumer food & beverage industry first witnessed high demand for household staples, healthy food items, and consumables with longer shelf lives. The demand for frozen food products, fruits & vegetables, eggs, flour, and whole grains, among others, witnessed a considerable increase during the early stages of the crisis. Presently, most companies in the industry are faced with low consumption of their products and supply chain challenges. The companies are focusing more on altering their supply chains in order to reinforce their online presence and delivery measures, in an attempt to adapt to the present business environment. The changes in consumer buying behavior and the dynamic shifts towards online and D2C distribution channels may have serious implications on the near future growth of the industry. Our team is diligently working towards accounting these factors in our report with the aim of providing you with the up-to-date, actionable market information and projections.
